Hiraki Sawa, "Going Places Sitting Down" (2004). SMOCA.

There were other worthwhile pieces at SMOCA, albeit seemingly hodge-podge put next to each other.

Hiraki's piece was the room, projected on three large screens. 3 channels exploring the notion of travel in their own slowish pace, via rocking horse, camel, plane, etc. . . in surrealistic landscapes that forces the viewer to question not only the nature of travel but the reason that propels one to distant landscapes. Left long enough, the viewer could easily create a visual mythology.
